A resurgent Alex Márquez returned to the rostrum after twice crashing due to the mistakes of others.
The second #StayAtHomeGP of 2020 proved to be the most dramatic yet as riders frantic fought over ten laps. Qualifying between the ten riders was with just a tenth splitting the front row. Álex continued his run of form to take third on the grid with Marc just a tenth behind in fourth.
Despite two crashes, the 23-year old remained focused and charged through the field to continue his perfect podium record with a well-earned third place at the Red Bull Ring.
Alex Márquez, 3rd : “An exciting race! I’m happy to be back on the podium after an intense race at the Red Bull Ring. There were some very aggressive riders in the race and I crashed twice with the others. For sure being able to get a podium finish with two crashes is something very special so I have to really enjoy this, even if I thought I could have fought for victory again. This is racing! I hope everyone who watched had a good time, it was fun to go racing with everyone again.”
